Big Tech censorship against Conservative influencers continues.
The Slack account operated by the Libs of TikTok team was allegedly banned by Slack over a service policy violation, The Post Millennial first reported.
The CEO of Babylon Bee, Seth Dillon, broke the news on Twitter Saturday. “@SlackHQ has permanently suspended @libsoftiktok. If your business is defending kids, Slack doesn’t want your money,” Dillon tweeted with a screenshot of Slack’s email to the Libs Of TikTok account holder.

Slack’s suspension email said the Libs Of TikTok group violated the company’s “Acceptable Use Policy.”
“As highlighted in Slack’s Acceptable Use Policy, Slack may exercise its right to suspend or terminate your access,” the email reads.
The vaguely worded Acceptable Use policy states “If we believe a violation of the policy is deliberate, repeated or presents a credible risk of harm to other users, our customers, the Services or any third parties, we may suspend or terminate your access. ”
The company that bought out Slack in 2020, Salesforce, claimed they were looking into the suspension of the account. “Hello Seth! Salesforce/Slack team is looking into this issue,” Salesforce responded to Dillon’s tweet.
Hello Seth! Salesforce/Slack team is looking into this issue.

Twitter users criticized the workplace collaboration company for their policy.
“Wow, does that mean that they read other companies confidential and private messages? This feels like a reason never to use slack, no matter of political affiliation,” one user questioned.
“Go Woke Go Broke. Companies can split themselves and their profits all they want,” another added.
National File previously reported on the Twitter-led censorship of the then-president of the United States, Donald Trump.
A December Twitter files drop detailed the chain of events that led to Twitter’s deplatforming of Trump. “Twitter employees violated their own policies in banning Trump’s account, while top content moderation officials seemed ecstatic about their regular meetings with federal law enforcement agencies, including the FBI.”
